Well, I'm finally looking to get back on two wheels (road AND mountain), but have a few questions from you more experienced cyclists.
1) is it possible to put a child seat on a mountain bike like the Trek Fuel EX?
2) Are there some bikes that are easier to put a child seat on than others? which bikes?
I'm a new dad (as of three and a half weeks ago), and although it's too early to put my son on my bike right now, I'd love to have that option when the time comes. I won't be doing SERIOUS off road/mountain riding with the bambino, mostly just dirt/trail riding.
do you not wear a helmet cause your such a "skilled" that you don't fall? Well you prolly do where a helmet, even on easy rides, so why is that? Well somtimes **** happens and you can't really account for everything, we've all had falls that where unavoidable acts of nature (stick blown into spokes ect) So now you wanna have a kid on the back of you bike ready to be catapulted into the ground?
Get child trailer (burley chariot ect) and use it on the road or very smooth dirt paths (not singletrack)
All the child seats mount via a rack, so a full squish is a no go
